White Heart –by Sherry Jones

I expected a novel, not a short story, in that regard, I was sorely disappointed. It was a great read, just too short! And, I do want more, so will pick up Four Sisters, All Queens.
European history is not my most favorite reading (I tend toward Asian histories) so it was a switch for me to read this story of Blanche of Castille and how she wrested control of France after her husband's death for her son, the 9th Louis, and managed to keep it.
If you're looking for a novel, don't pick it up. If you're looking for a pleasant and well written read, this just may be your ticket.
